Consensus: Despite Diane Lane's earnest effort, Untraceable manages to be nothing more than a run-of-the-mill thriller with a hypocritical message.

You know something ain't kosher when a movie purporting to offer a critique of sadistic voyeurism opens with a hand-rubbing scene of kitten abuse.

We, the real-life audience, are as sick as the movie's fictional viral audience if we reward the studio behind Untraceable with our dollars.

Morally duplicitous torture porn: how else to describe Untraceable, a bleak, rain-washed horror thriller.

Philip Marchand
Toronto Star

Untraceable demonstrates, once again, how unnecessary it is for audiences actually to understand technical jargon.

For all the would-be with-it cyber/techno-speak, strip that all away, and Gregory Hoblit's film is completely stale and cliched thriller nonsense.

This joyless thriller runs the gamut from unconscionable through unwatchable to unendurable. It's also unfathomable that two talented people, Diane Lane and her director, Gregory Hoblit, got themselves involved in such an unpromising enterprise.

Untraceable is a thriller with a heavy moral compass which shines a bright light on internet ethics.
